If you’ve already managed to snag tickets for ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child‘, currently being performed at London’s Palace Theatre, you’re either very lucky with buying online tickets, or you have a shed load of money. With resale tickets listed for as much as £2,999 EACH, the world has gone barmy for the next J.K. Rowling instalment.
Fear not though, because the goddess of our generation J.K. Rowling has cast a spell to ensure that lucky fans can get tickets for £40, in a system called the ‘Friday Forty’. The tickets, if you’re lucky enough to get them in your basket quick enough, will allow you in to both parts one and two of the play for the following week.
There is a slight catch, though – you’ll have to have your fingers poised and ready on Friday’s at 1 pm London time, when 40 seats will be made available each week. Why didn’t anyone tell us about this before?
So. Potterheads as the clock ticks down to 1pm on a Friday make sure you head to THIS webpage, where a countdown will be tumbling down to the exact moment you can buy tickets. When the time comes the countdown will change into a ‘Book Tickets’ button, and then the real fun starts as you being swearing profusely at your computer screens while being shoved into an online queue. All in the name of Potter, eh?
